A printer error has occurred tunr the printer off and then on again. If this doesn't clear the error, the printer needs repair. See the manual and contact the service center.

Thank you. I assume you did already turn off the printer, unplugged it for 10 seconds from the power cord and then turned it back on?

it didn't work
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 3 months ago.

OK, then the printer might indeed need a repair, but I will opt out from your question for a second opinion from another expert, please stay tuned... Thank you very much.

Hi there and welcome

10 seconds will be too short for any of the capacitors on the board to drain, I want you please to disconnect the power cable from the printer and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Connect the power cable, power it on and tell me if it clears the error please.
